Online shopping is the greatest thing ever. It’s easy, convenient and time-saving. In fact, most of my wardrobe has been bought online rather than in-stores. But for plus size shoppers, online shopping (and clothes shopping in general) can be a daunting experience. Many of our favorite brands only offer sizes Extra Small through Large, making it difficult for people whose body sizes fall outside of these measurements to purchase fashionable, affordable and well-fitting clothes. A discrepancy in what constitutes as “plus-sized” may be the reason why plus size women have such a tough time online shopping. According to Cosmopolitan, the fashion industry refers to women above a size 8 plus-size. Studies show, however, that the average American woman is a size 16! Whether you’re a size 16 or size 22, a double XL or a quadruple XL, every woman deserves to to shop online stress-free. Here a few of the best online plus size boutiques and some of their items that we love!
Eloquii Velvet Blazer ($139.90)
New York-based boutique Eloquii.com is one of our favorite places to shop for plus-sized clothing. They cater to sizes 14 through 28 and have new styles released daily — like this classic, velvet blazer. Velvet anything is a must-have during the winter season. What we love about blazers is that they can be worn casually or as business-casual. Sizes 14, 16, 18, and 24 are currently available for this super stretchy and stylish velvet blazer.
Torrid Retro Chic Silver Metallic Twist Front Midi Swing Dress ($37.45, originally $74.90)
Torrid, formerly owned by Hot Topic, has brick-and-mortar stores, but we love Torrid.com because you can always find the items you need in stock, at the right size, and for the right price — Like this beautiful metallic, A-line cocktail dress. Torrid sizes range from 00 to 6, the equivalent of M/L through 6X.
4. LANE BRYANT
You may recall Lane Bryant’s 2017 #ThisBody campaign that inspired many women, plus-size and not, to be happy and comfortable with their body and size. Lane Bryant is another brick-and-mortar retailer, but you’ll also find amazing styles and prices at LaneBryant.com. If you were wondering where you could find those amazing corset lace-up pants that Beyoncé recently wore, these are pretty similar!
UrbanOG Double Flutter Tier Bardot Vegan Suede Top ($16.96, originally $26.10)
UrbanOG.com is a premier online retailer that features many options for plus-size women. Like this gorgeous ruffled blouse that comes in size 1X, 2X and 3X, and colors black and burgundy.
